King's RvR Tournament Winners

Nov 04, 2016 - 10:30 AM - by beibhinn
The 2016 King's RvR Tournament has ended and we're happy to announce and congratulate our official statue winners! Check out the final leaderboards to see where you ended up!




Keep Capture Winners

Albion - Jynnxx, the Heretic, with 174 captures
Midgard - Ciannie, the Huntress, with 210 captures
Hibernia - Commanderling, the Enchanter, with 472 captures

Overall - Commanderling, the Enchanter
Solo Kill Winners

Albion - Kenco, the Infiltrator, with 418 solo kills
Midgard - Sixed, the Shadowblade, with 775 solo kills
Hibernia - Roxzie, the Valewalker, with 510 solo kills
Overall - Sixed, the Shadowblade


Skill Index Winners

Albion - Yama, the Minstrel, with a score of 80,855
Midgard - Interqqlolz, the Healer, with a score of 51,860
Hibernia - Farmacist, the Bard, with a score of 68,150
Overall - Yama, the Minstrel


Each winner above will have a statue built in their likeness in their realm's capital city! These statues should be completed within the next few weeks and will grant players who pay homage to them a rewarding quest!

In addition to the above winners, we would also like to congratulate the top 10 winners in each realm, for each category, who will receive a 15 year anniversary poster (90 winners total)!

Each of the top 10 winners will receive an email requesting the address they'd like the poster delivered to - please follow the email's instructions carefully!

If an account has multiple winning characters in the top 10 of multiple categories, the highest placed character among all of the categories will win the poster and the rest will be passed over as only 1 poster per account will be sent out. This means that some of those that finished just outside the top 10 could yet win a poster!

If you won, or even if you're close to winning, please ensure that your account's email address is up to date with a valid, working email and be sure to keep an eye on your spam filter over the next week: if we don't get a reply, we can't send you your poster!

Congratulations again to everyone and thank you all for participating!

King's RvR Tournament Ends

Oct 31, 2016 - 10:50 PM - by beibhinn
Another epic King's RvR Tournament has come to an end!

The final, official leaderboards will be up later this week after our investigations to ensure a clean tournament are complete. Any participants found cheating will be removed from tonight's leaderboards and disqualified from winning the rewards.

Remember, realm winners of each category will receive a statue made out of their character's likeness in their realm's capital city!



Additionally, all characters who ended up in the top 10 per realm, in each category will be receiving a 15th Anniversary Poster (can only win 1 per person). Once the final, official leaderboards have been announced later this week, players who won a poster will be contacted via email requesting the address they would like the posters shipped to.

If you're currently in or near the top 10 in any category, please be sure to update your email addresses on those accounts so you don't miss the notification email from us!

  • The King's Tournament will also be ending just before midnight EST on October 31st. If you haven't checked out the leaderboards yet, be sure to do so HERE!
  • Remember, the realm's winner in each category will receive a statue of their character's likeness!
  • We're also happy to announce an extra reward to the top 10 winners per realm in each category: their very own copy of the 15th Anniversary poster!

Halloween Event 2016: Trick or Treat

Oct 18, 2016 - 10:20 AM - by beibhinn
October is not just our favorite month because of the Anniversary, it's also Halloween! And that means haunted cities, candy and costumes, pumpkin patches in the Frontiers, and this year... some exciting new tricks and treats to enjoy!

Check out the teaser video for a peek into the new content with more details listed below!

Festivities begin today, October 18th and will conclude on Monday, November 7th.



  • Level 50 players should visit the ghostly queen, Lenore, in each realm's capital city to receive the new quest 'A Hallowed Lost'.
    • Visit the pumpkin patches in the frontier to find the buttertoe candy pieces Lenore needs and get some exciting new Trick or Treat costumes for your realmmates!
      • Only the pumpkin patches in Ellan Vannin, Pennine Mountains, Jamtland Mountains, and Breifine drop the five buttertoe candy pieces she needs.
        • You'll want to get this year's Ghostly Harvest quest to help guide you to the pumpkin patches!
        • Defeat the hallowed ghost, mummy, night bat, walking dead, or gooey slime at the pumpkin patches to get the candy pieces.
        • Different patches have different candy pieces available.

      • Trick or Treat potions can be used on your realm-mates to give them randomized costumes!
        • These potions will be usable in RvR for the three days surrounding and including Halloween!


    • Earn a new friend for your efforts!



  • A new instance dungeon, the Castle of the Mournful King, awaits those willing to brave its powerful ruler's fury!
    • Level 50 players should speak with Lenore to teleport to the instance.
    • Earn armor and weapons with stats you've seen before - but with different skins!
    • Draughts of Supremacy and Otherworldly Helms also have a chance to drop!
    • This instance is meant to be extremely challenging and is therefore entirely optional and not required to complete the new quest.



  • Lenore can be found in the following locations within the capital cities:
    • Camelot: The Church of Albion
    • Jordheim: The Temple of the Aesir
    • Tir na Nog: Alainn Cuir's courtyard





  • The Ghostly Harvest Quest offers players level 45 and up a dangerous adventure in the frontiers. Speak with John Tobin on the Cotswold Bridge, Foa Muldisson outside the Jordheim North Gates, or Nera by the road in Mag Mell to begin the quest. (Note: Players who completed this quest last year will now be offered it again.)
  • Treat sellers have been spotted selling sugary confections inside Meath, Erikstaad, and Caerwent.
  • The consignment merchants would like to show you their Halloween spirit! Pick up the merchant and place it back down on your house porch and he will change into a Halloween outfit for you!
  • Be aware adventurers! Ghosts haunt the streets of your capital cities as the pumpkin moon rises! Ghosts have also been spotted in Mag Mell, Aegirhamn, and Campacorentin Station.
  • The horses you once rode have joined the spirit realm. (This affects stable and merchant horses only - not player controlled horses.)
  • Something strange has happened to all of the puppies.
  • The pumpkins have been carved into jack o' lanterns!
  • A trio of crazy old women have been spotted selling costume potions inside Camelot, Jordheim, and Tir na Nog.
    • The costume potions last 15 minutes each and come in a variety of flavors.
    • The costume potions work best if you remove your helm and armor.
    • You cannot digest another costume potion if you are transformed into any of the monster forms.
    • The costume potions' magics are short-lived and the potions will be useless after the festivities end so don't horde them.

Radar Bans

Oct 12, 2016 - 10:54 AM - by beibhinn
We are happy to see that the overall number of cheaters from previous passes is much lower this time around though some players still haven't gotten the message. As such, we have issued the following permanent bans and suspensions:




  • A little over one hundred accounts were issued permanent bans for either extreme usage or repeat offenses of radar hacks.
  • Several dozen accounts were issued 7-day suspensions for low usage and first time offenses of radar hacks.

While we're still working towards completely eliminating radar and all other cheats from the game, this is another solid step towards that goal. Happy hunting out there!

Hot Fix: 15th Anniversary Loyalty Rewards

Oct 10, 2016 - 3:00 PM - by beibhinn
Happy birthday Dark Age of Camelot!

Fifteen years ago today, the servers were filled with the first wide-eyed players eager to explore the realms of Albion, Midgard, and Hibernia. Little did they know they were going to help form the best community of players in gaming and experience a three-sided war unlike any other. This update is a big thank you to all of you here celebrating the anniversary and is especially for those players that have been here since that humble beginning fifteen years ago.

Without further ado, check out the notes below!


  • The Kings in each realm are offering a new quest, depending on your loyalty over the years:
    • Accounts that have accumulated 15 years of subscription time OR that were a current, paid subscription on September 27th, 2016 will receive the quest: Loyalty Rewarded
      • This quest will reward players with a unique, class-specific cloak!
      • Check out the awesome cloak art below!
      • These cloaks will unlock powerful stats and abilities as they are leveled!

    • Accounts that do not meet the above requirements will receive the quest: Loyalty Needed
      • This quest will require players on Ywain to capture a keep before being able to earn their class-specific cloak.
      • This quest will require players on Gaheris to defeat a Herald on Ellan Vannin before being able to earn their class-specific cloak.
      • Check out the awesome cloak art below!
      • These cloaks will unlock powerful stats and abilities as they are leveled!



Albion Cloaks

Midgard Cloaks

Hibernia Cloaks


  • Accounts that have accumulated 15 years of subscription time OR that were a current, paid subscription on September 27th, 2016 can visit the Census Overseer NPC in each realm's capital city to receive a 15 year housing trophy.
    • Please note that Census Overseers will now properly reward accounts that have had 5+ years of accumulated subscription time with their loyalty rewards. This should fix issues with EU accounts not being able to receive the 5 year rewards.





  • Any accounts that have accumulated 15 years of subscription time will receive the new title "Honored Elder" upon login. To view your character's titles in-game, type /title.
    • Going forward, any accounts that accumulate 15 years of subscription time will also receive the new title "Honored Elder".
